Filipino Crosscurrents

This chapter discusses the concept of time and space for the unemployed Filipino seamen waiting for work and Filipino seamen working in the global shipping industry. Some aspiring seamen wait for hours, days, months or years trying to find employment in domestic and global shipping industries, while Filipino seamen working in the global shipping industry move through different locations and moments of the global economy. Time seems unmoving for the unemployed Filipino seamen searching for work in the waiting area, but faster for the employed Filipino seafarers.

Keywords:   time-space, Filipino seamen, global economy, time, global shipping industry
